Swedish or Relaxation Massage

Swedish massage is generally considered for reducing muscle tension and overall body stress, with the main goal being to relax the mind and body.  This technique utilizes light to medium pressure with long sweeping strokes, kneading, and gliding over the superficial layers of muscle tissue.  Swedish massage increases vascular circulation, facilitates the release of built up toxins in tissue, and encourages increased joint mobility with active or passive stretching, and range of motion movements.

Myofascial Release or Deep Tissue Massage
This can be used for areas of chronic pain due to tightness in the fascia or connective tissue.  Using medium to deep pressure with long stretching strokes and manipulation of the muscles, the tight areas are released and are able to function with greater movement and ease.  Fascia can be tight from poor posture, chronic inflammation, and surgery.  This technique is helpful for headaches, plantar fascitis, TMJ, and carpal tunnel and scar tissue.
